Survey 1 - Favorites



As a corollary to yesterday's "Storyteller" series, today presents the musician's equivalent: "Survey." In part one I asked 5 different musicians to play for me the single best melody from the repertoire, specific to their instrument. The definition of "best" was kept somewhat vague, and could therefore be interpreted in a variety of ways (ranging from mere personal preference through very thought-out reasoning about how the melody fits on their particular instrument, etc etc etc). The players were violinist Alyssa Park, double bassist Nico Abondolo, clarinetist Andrew Leonard, flutist Amy Tatum, and oboist Tom Boyd.

A favorite snack for the cats. My once pretty "bamboo" has been gnawed to a nub.
